What is IoT Monitoring?
Monitoring your Internet of Things (IoT) inventory is the process of discovering, evaluating, monitoring, and managing your connected devices. IoT monitoring keeps you informed about any issues associated with your IoT assets affecting business-critical applications and service performance.
Why is IoT monitoring important?
Today’s enterprises are integrating IoT devices into their IT strategies at a staggering rate. Juniper Research estimates there are 35 billion devices connected to networks in 2020, and that there will be 83 billion by 2024. That’s a 130% increase, and as 5G connectivity becomes widespread, that number could increase.
Every device you add to your network draws on resources, generates data, and communicates with other devices and services. That means as you add new devices, you’re introducing risk and affecting the performance of your applications, systems, and services.
To keep track of every device you integrate into your IT environment, forward-looking businesses rely on an AIOps platform designed to discover and monitor all your IoT assets across your entire IT estate.
